Gerland on farewell to Bavaria: “I approached the club”
Hermann Gerland’s farewell words: “I started at FC Bayern in 1990 and, with one interruption, gave everything for the club for 25 years. During this time, we had great moments and successes, and I was allowed to work with the best coaches in the world: Jupp Heynckes , Louis van Gaal, Pep Guardiola, Carlo Ancelotti, Hansi Flick – nothing more is possible. Now I approached the club and together we came to the conclusion that I should terminate my contract. I will always remain connected to FC Bayern and its great fans and wish the whole club the very best for the future. “
CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge also commented on the departure of the club icon: “You can’t rate what Hermann Gerland has done for FC Bayern highly enough. As assistant coach, he won the German championship eight times, five times DFB-Pokal, twice the Champions League, twice the Club World Cup and twice the European Supercup. In addition, he successfully trained our amateurs and was the athletic director on campus. Last but not least, he was led by Bastian Schweinsteiger and Philipp Lahm from Thomas Müller to David Alaba trained many players who made history at FC Bayern. “
